Katia’s Recipe for a Handmade Winter

This new video from Katia is so adorable it makes me want to bake cookies and ask all my yarn loving friends to come over for a sit and stitch!

Follow this link to see the video. You won’t be sorry. http://katia.com/index.php?lng=EN

I like that they show both knitting and crocheting.

If you want to try to recreate the video at home, we can at least help you out with some of the yarns. You’re own your own for finding a beautiful room in which to host the party. LOL

Katia Azteca is a 50% wool, 50% acrylic blend. This is color #38

Azteca is featured in the fall 2013 book “Beginners“. This great magazine has a collection of patterns that will be good for the beginner knitter, as well as experienced knitters looking for quick and easy projects.

Look for Azteca yarn, and Katia pattern books, at your local yarn store.

The free pattern for the crocheted hat or knit cowl is already available on our website.

Cap Junior is another great yarn for beginner knitters and crocheters because you’ll work simple stitches, but your finished project will look complicated.

If the bright colors of Cap Junior aren’t to your liking, we’re also importing Cap Basic, which features more neutral colors.
